Cemeteries

We believe the Chapel did NOT have a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded in 1857, but we understand it was closed in 1947.

The Pictures of Derby page for Becket Street says this chapel was closed in 1960, but Derbyshire Record Office's Non-Conformist Register Guide, says it closed in 1947, and certainly it does not list any parish register coverage beyond that date.

'Pictures of Derby' also has a photograph, showing it with a pediment at the front (since removed), and points out it is now known as 'Padley House', and in use as a Direct Access Hostel, providing accomodation for homeless people.

It features on the Derby Church Net pages as the Padley Day Centre.

Denomination

Now or formerly Free/United Methodist.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
